The Maryland Court of Special Appeals ruled Saturday it will hear testimony about whether Adnan Syed should get another trial — which could give the subject of the "Serial" podcast another chance to get out of prison.
Syed has maintained his innocence since he was found guilty in 2000. His case became the focus of national attention when it was the center of the "This American Life" spinoff podcast, "Serial."
